PHOTOGRAPHERS: Want to learn my tips to creating beautiful flatlays?



I kind of missed the mark on writing out a “30 before 30” list of things to accomplish before turning the big THIRTY. I think the way to make it up for that is to make a list of 30 things to accomplish while in my 30s. The first thirty years of my life were spent traveling to over 30 countries and 4 continents, having my heart broken then finding true love, losing my corporate job and becoming successfully self-employed, discovering things like macarons, love for fashion and interior design, going on 3 cruises, to Paris 3 times in the last 3 years, getting scuba certified, Yoga certified, swimming with sharks and feeding stingrays; going parasailing, learning to successfully make Creme Brûlée and crepes; seeing whales in Iceland, having brown, black, red and blonde hair… and realizing life is meant to be LIVED with no regrets.

Here’s my list, and cheers to the next 10 years!
